Dragonair will introduce new first class seats on some of its Airbus A330-300s during the first quarter of 2014.

The new seats will feature a fully flat, 20.2in (51cm) wide cushion and an 82in pitch. The seats will also feature a 15.4in in-flight entertainment screen, universal power supply outlet and multiport connectors.

The first class upgrade comes after Dragonair began rolling out new business and economy seats during 2013, which also included a rollout of audio and video on demand IFE systems across all classes.

“With the rollout of our new First Class, we can ensure that the journeys of all passengers, in all classes of travel, are even more relaxing and enjoyable,” says Dragonair’s chief executive Patrick Yeung. “This overhaul of our in-flight offering demonstrates our commitment to offer superior products and services to our passengers, and also underlines Dragonair’s commitment to long-term expansion and development.”

Flightglobal’s Ascend Online Fleets database shows that the carrier operates 20 Airbus A330-300s, of which six are fitted with first class seats.
